Dear beloved brothers and sisters, Loving greetings from Vikasitha Ministries, India in the name of the Most High and Exalted One! We hope you all are doing well and had a wonderful and blessed Easter. As I write this update, the Lord brings the following words to mind: Andrew Fuller (English Minister) once said, "There is a gold mine in India; but it seems as deep as the center of the earth; who will venture to explore it?" "I will go down," responded William Carey (lifelong missionary to India), and continued in words never to be forgotten, "but remember that you must hold the rope." I personally appreciate all of you for being the ‘rope holders’ of Vikasitha Ministries through the past years in your faithful giving, prayer and support in our times of need. I encourage you to take the initiative in introducing Vikasitha Ministries to your friends and family so we can continue to be a candle in the darkness. Ministry Update: 1. We are coming to the end of the various school years. By May 6th, final exams will be over in our Leadership Training Centre (Harvesters training program) and then we will leave for 7 weeks for our Summer Gospel Camps. Blossoming Buds exams will go till May 24th followed by 7 weeks off for summer. 2. In March, we started 2 Vanitha (Ladies) Self Help Centres in 2 different districts. Through these we are reaching even more communities. 3. Starting this January, we have taken on Mr. Vinay Vucha as full time office staff as our assistant manager. 4. On March 2nd, the Lord sent pastor Ryan, pastor Scott and brother Aaron from Resonate Church in Fremont, CA to visit us here in India for 7 days. We visited one of our church planters, an 8-hour drive by car, and it was a blessed trip, with the team being able to see what the Lord has been doing in that district. 5. Oudharyam’ (Widows and Aged Ministry) beneficiaries are very thankful to you for helping them. We are supporting 66 widows currently. Prayer Requests: 1. Pray for our travels during the hot summer months, as the heat has already started. Today it is 97 F. Humidity 85%. In summer, our temperatures will go beyond 120 F. We plan to travel for 7 weeks to different regions of our state, with programs including several outreach programs and 26 nightly gospel meetings, a few leadership conferences and youth meetings. 2. Good health and road safety. 3. Pray for those who stay at the headquarters in Vijayawada to look after the ministry while we are traveling, especially in the absence of Surekha. It is actually a very difficult challenge for all of us. 4. Sufficient funds to continue to run different ministry activities. We always love to hear from you. Special thanks to our US Advisory Team as you all know without their efforts it’s hard to do this much ministry. In the work that counts, Your Indian brother, Steeven Veerapaneni for all
